The measure of any School program is in the voice it provides students to help shape it. Student leadership is not only about opportunity, but a responsibility to contribute.

  • Student Government

    With a student-elected Senate, House of Advisory, and Executive Board, The Hun School’s Student Government brings together the voices and energies of ninety-one students to help shape the student experience at The Hun School.  Members of Student Government address the needs and desires of the student body.  They seek first to understand how the School might function better and secondly to assure that it can. 
  • Peer Leadership

    The peer leader program matches two 12th grade students with each 9th grade advisory group.  These peer leaders are selected by a committee that reviews academic achievements, involvement in co-curricular activities, and standing in the Hun community.  Peer leaders are expected to model the school principles of Academic Excellence, Integrity, Kindness, Respect, Trust, and Commitment in all capacities and at all times, both in and out of the school setting.

    The peer leaders will be responsible for helping their freshmen groups acclimate to all aspects of high school, including academic pursuits, social relationships, and co-curricular commitments. Peer leaders will also act as mentors for and role models to the freshmen and will serve to be an approachable upperclassman to whom a freshman can bring issues and concerns.
  • Proctor Program

    Proctors are student leaders in the Resident Life community.  They are invaluable student resources in campus-life.  They help new students adjust to life away from home, act as liaisons between students and faculty in the dormitories, and are responsible for helping to develop weekend programs.
  • Leadership Curriculum

    Students of the freshman and sophomore classes are required to take a semester-long seminar.  The seminar series of classes introduces and cultivates interdisciplinary skills such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking as well as enforces the standards and expectations of academic rigor and community participation.  Leadership and community education continues through the years at The Hun School as Student Deans and Advisory Groups organize thematic grade-level opportunities at every grade level.  Opportunities range from important adolescent discussions to teamwork building scavenger hunts.

Student Leadership

Preparing students to thrive in a world of constant change is at the heart of a Hun School education.  Not only are students taught to explore academic theories and to communicate thoughts concisely, they are guided to use their voices to establish educated opinions and lead.  Leadership takes many forms at The Hun School, and student leadership opportunities are everywhere.  

In the classroom students express their ideas, persuading one another to see beyond their individual scope.  On the fields of competition, athletes encourage those around them to focus their abilities and energies to achieve greatness as a team.  In the performing arts, students direct productions, symphonies, and choirs, bringing together the talents of many to create art.

These opportunities help students develop skills in communication, collaboration, time management, prioritization, and planning.  Sufficient breadth and variety within those roles helps The Hun School maintain its valued culture of diversity, student empowerment, and impassioned participation.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school.  Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
